If the Inca Empire played Tetris at Machu Picchu, I imagine it would look something like this. Though in their version, there might have been some ritual sacrifice involved, and a corresponding lack of “play again.” :)

If my image shot about 5 years ago gets cropped any more to remove the water marks then at some point it will only be teeth. 

If you repost - or post it in this case, leave the credits intact. And Don’t Add Your Own watermarks.

Fractal Fall, 2008I had a final composition like this in mind when I shot the orange canopy of this tree. Flipped one shot horizontally and vertically in 4 different layers and upped the contrast and shifted the blue hue about 15 points darker. Ended up being a 120MB Tiff file that i flattened and exported from in Lightroom to become a 34MB jpeg. And then this one I posted.   ** and yes I know it’s not technically a Mandelbrot-esque fractal.

The Secret Bench of KnowledgeIt is a sculpture created by Canadian artist Lea Vivot and was produced in multiple castings. This one, or perhaps more correctly they, sit outside Library and Archives Canada on Wellington St, in Ottawa.

In Flanders Fields…I wanted to do a ghostly processing on the bronze figures at the front of the National War Memorial. And when done, they were isolated on a field of white and almost like they were pencil or charcoal sketches. It is different than what you normally see and I like the result. National War MemorialOttawa, Canada

Onaping Falls, Autumn, 2012The Onaping Falls, or High Falls, are where the Onaping River leaves theCanadian Shield and drops 46 metres into the Sudbury Nickel Irruptive, the enormous crater caused by a meteorite strike two billion years ago - the event that made Sudbury, Ontario so rich in ore deposits like Nickel.In 1953, A.Y. Jackson, one of the founding members of the Canadian “Group of Seven” painters, visited this site and painted Spring on the Onaping River.  I was hard pressed to find an image of his painting either before or after I visited this spot about 40km  NW of Sudbury.  I never found one, but I am sure there is one out there somewhere. Even the McMichael Gallery in Kelinburg don’t believe there is an archival image. The painting was stolen around the time of his death in early 1970s and never recovered.

Air BelugaOutside an LCBO across the street from the Sheraton in Ottawa. I can only imagine coming out of the LCBO after already having had a few beverages and seeing a beluga flying overhead. :)For those not in Ontario, all  alcohol in the province is sold in government liquor stores operated by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario  or LCBO for short.

I  like this free spirited shot of Corey running in a forest a couple of years ago. I need to find more free spirited nude models. :)

I shot this in 2008. Well before the episode “A Good Man Goes to War” of Dr Who with the Headless Monks. However, when seeing this image the other day, I instantly thought of that. My subject’s neck is, however, somewhat more attractive. ;)
